Why does my washing machine not start?

Washing machine won’t start

Nothing is worse than when you have a load of laundry ready to be washed, but then your washing machine won’t start! There are a number of different reasons this could be happening, but don’t worry, because we are here to get to the bottom of it.


  • Drain hose is broken: if your drain hose is faulty, your machine may hum but won’t start. When the water can’t flow into the washer or drain out because of a broken hose, it is going to have a problem starting. In this case, you will need to replace the hose.
  • Water flow: If there is no problem with your house but there seems to be an issue with your machine filling with water, you may not have an efficient water flow. If there is not an efficient water flow, your machine will not be able to start. You can first check to see if the water taps for your machine are fully turned on and open. If the taps are turned properly, you may have a plumbing issue.
  • Issue with the pump: something may have blocked the pump such as a sock, or it could simply be damaged or broken. If the pump cannot work properly, the machine won’t be able to start. You will need professional help to get the pump checked safely.
  • Motor is broken: if there is a burning smell along with a humming sound when your machine won’t start, your motor may be burnt out. This is a serious issue and the motor will probably need to be replaced. It is wise to contact the professionals when it comes to motor issues.
